'Penguins of Madagascar' Mockumentary: Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich Take Method Acting to a New Level

EDIT
by Britt Hayes a day ago
There are some actors who take their work very, very seriously—Daniel Day Lewis or Christian Bale, for instance. Guys who fully immerse themselves in their characters so much that they become the people they’re playing. This method of acting is respectable, sure, but the latest ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ featurette has a little fun with it, as Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, and the rest of the voice cast show off just how committed they were to playing their animated animal roles.

Jimmy Fallon’s supposedly good time games are becoming increasingly more complicated, threading in generally fun ideas (“let’s tell a story together!”) with weird constraints (“put you can only use three words!”) with one final, seemingly impossible demand (“and then you have to make me say this mystery word!”). Fortunately for the ‘Tonight Show’ host, he picked a game (tee hee) partner for his first crack at “Three-Word Stories.”

The 'Doctor Strange' casting has come full circle. After a series of stops and starts (we're looking at you, Joaquin Phoenix), Marvel has returned to one of the very first actors they had their eye on for their upcoming superhero movie: Benedict Cumberbatch. Deadline is reporting that the 'Sherlock' star is in "final negotiations" with Marvel to star in 'Doctor Strange' and, presumably, a number of other big 'Avengers' style crossover movies.

Here we go again! Another day, and yet another 'Doctor Strange' update: the latest news has Marvel adding one -- just one -- more name to the ever-growing list of possible stars to play the Sorcerer Supreme, while we've learned that at least a couple of actors haven't quite been crossed off that list just yet: most notably Joaquin Phoenix, who had previously been in negotiations with Marvel over the summer.

In case you weren't aware, perhaps because of all the war and code-cracking action at play in the trailers, the lead character in the TIFF 2014 standout and early awards hopeful 'The Imitation Game' is gay. I know, it's nothing like we've seen in the...

This is why awards season is stupid. (Full disclosure: I kind of like awards season sometimes, but it is stupid.) We can’t live in a world in which the media can see ‘The Theory of Everything’ or ‘The Imitation Game’ and just say, “That was a good movie,” then move on with our lives. No, it will be the battle for Best Actor between Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

When 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt filmed his acceptance of the ALS Ice Challenge, we all thought he had beat the internet. Blue Ice vodka? Smirnoff Ice? Genius! However, that was until the great and playful Benedict Cumberbatch stepped up to the plate and filmed the greatest response to this viral phenomenon to date.

Yes, we live in a world where there are dueling 'Jungle Book' adaptations and, no, neither project appears to be backing down. For whatever reason, two separate movie studios have decided that Rudyard Kipling's iconic stories about Mowgli and his animal allies and adversaries deserve a reboot, and the latest shot fired in this showdown is the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the villainous tiger Shere Khan in 'Jungle Book: Origins.'
